Despite different origin stories, the characters have similar traits of power and would be evenly matched in a fair fight.
Although each character is superior than their counterparts in one way or another, they both reign supreme in their own universes.
The significant difference between both the universes is that, Marvel characters live in real world like New York and Hell's Kitchen and are more relatable to the real world, with real world problems. While all the DC characters live in fictitious cities like Gotham, Metropolis, Central city and sort of feel like, they exist in the world of their own.
The DC characters are more superhuman and are mostly dark in terms of live-action movies while Marvel characters are more related to normal human beings and have a lighter tone of humor mixed in the grand scheme of things.
Overall, the battle between the characters from both universe would result in a tie! Both have their strengths and both have their weaknesses.
